Currently a Master of Social Work student at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I previously studied Human Psychology at Huntington University and Communication and Religious Studies at University of Oxford, graduating with my BA in 2010.  I’ve worked in interpersonal assistance roles (such as teaching preschool or tutoring others through a learning processes organization), and organizational roles (such as starting up a neuroscience lab or organizing conflict resolution practice opportunities for adults).  I’ve always been fascinated with helping people–including myself–to thrive.  In 2010, I trained in Motivational Interviewing and other strengths-based approaches to change, which informed my philosophy on helping others achieve their goals. In 2013, I began helping others to organize in their homes and lives.  That same year, I began studying about conflict resolution techniques, a journey that has deeply impacted my perspective on effective ways to engage ourselves, others, communication, and the possibility of hope and change, particularly when we experience internal turmoil or external conflict, and need more clarity.  Please see my resume for a little more on my history.
